Bonifacio Ondó Edu (died 5 March 1969) was the prime minister of Equatorial Guinea while it was still under Spanish colonial rule. He took office when the country gained autonomy in 1963, and ran in the country's first presidential election, losing in the run-off. He handed power to newly elected president Francisco Macías Nguema on 12 October 1968 (the day of independence). He was imprisoned and officially committed suicide only a few months later.
